Instead, the club banked on sporting continuity to rebuild and return to the Bundesliga in the long term. Now after finishing sixth, and eight in the last two seasons Braunschweig are in the pole position to return to the Bundesliga.
Behind those three clubs are six potential candidates, who could sneak in to take one of the top three positions. Stuttgart and Hannover 96 have been busy during the transfer window and, thanks to their big budgets, and according to our Bundesliga 2 preview should have enough in the tank to finish the league in the top two.
Do not be surprised to see the likes of Union Berlin, and Dynamo Dresden sneaking in the promotion race, and perhaps finishing third.
The nature of the Bundesliga 2 means that virtually half the league is fighting for promotion, and the other half against relegation.
Perhaps the biggest surprise in the drop zone is the current status of St. A legendary club both in Germany and also in the rest of Europe, due to their alternative fan scene, St.
Pauli are favourites for the direct drop to Liga 3. Perhaps their biggest hope is the fact that they are only three points behind 15 th placed Karlsruher SC, who occupy the last place before the drop zone.
Furthermore, with newly promoted Erzgebirge Aue, and Arminia Bielefeld, they have two clubs directly ahead of them, who were by many expected to play against relegation all season long.
There is, therefore, hope that St. Especially after signing the likes of Johannes Flum, who should bring stability to St. Transfers have been hard to come by, however, and there was no major movement until this week when the club was supposedly close to bringing in defender, Ba Abdoulaye Porto , left-back, Lumor, and forward, Amilton both Portimonense.
All three are spectacular captures for a second division club, but it remains to be seen whether Pereira can form a strong unit from the get go, and quickly guide the club out of the relegation zone.
Kaiserslautern, in the meantime, has gone from one crisis to another since they were relegated in The following season the club finished third, then they twice finished fourth, and finally in tenth place, and is now miles away from achieving promotion.
Kaiserslautern, along with , are a great example of what happens to big clubs if they do not manage to quickly achieve promotion back to the Bundesliga.
Both clubs are deeply entrenched in the relegation battle. Trying to buy your way back into the Bundesliga has led to overspending in the first few seasons, which then led to financial problems and budget cuts.
As a result, Kaiserslautern are now under severe financial pressure, which means that they had to sell many of their top players. Overall, however, the squad should be strong enough to avoid relegation, and Kaiserslautern, along with , are likely to pull themselves out of the relegation battle with relative ease.
It is always tough to say who will go down by the end of the season. But in our Bundesliga 2 Preview we believe that Erzgebirge Aue, and Arminia Bielefeld are the likeliest candidates for direct relegation to Liga 3.

With the likes of Alphonso Davies, Josh Sargent and maybe Callum Hudson-Odoi ready to burst onto the scene, the impact of youth is not likely to diminish and there are plenty of headlines left to be grabbed.
Hudson-Odoi transfer talk shows difference between Bundesliga and Premier League. Robert Lewandowski is one of five players to have broken double digits in the first half of the season, but he trails the league leaders Paco Alcacer and the aforementioned Jovic by two goals at present.
It would be quite something if Alcacer 42 minutes per goal and Jovic 84 went a whole season needing less than 90 minutes per goal.
